DPRTV: Fujifilm X-E4 – ILC X100?

DPRTV released its full Fujifilm X-E4 review after releasing its COVID first impressions here.

  • Very similar to the X-S10, but the X-S10 is designed as a DSLR replacement
  • X-E4 is about minimalist thinking
  • Light plastic fees and not weather sealed
  • Aftermarket thumb grips and grips make the camera feel better
  • Might be a step too far for minimalism
  • X-E4 should have a back control dial because just having a front dial is confusing/distracting
  • More customizable controls would be nice
  • AF selector is missed here
  • Some might want to stick with an X-T30, but it doesn’t have the latest AF
  • X-E4 focuses like an X-T4
  • Not quite up to Sony’s AF system
  • Nice rear screen and EVF
  • The nose can hit the screen and move the AF point
  • Not a lot of eye relief so can be a little cramped
  • Decent touch screen interface
  • Good for family stuff and street photography
  • 30-70 shots to fill the buffer depending on the mode you use which gives you 1-5 second of shooting before filling the buffer
  • Only one UHS-I card slot
  • Same excellent 26MP sensor that is in other cameras with a fast read out speed
  • Missing nostaligic neg mode
  • Pretty impressive for video 4k30p and 1080 240p, but only log 8-bit
  • Can get 10-bit on an external recorder
  • Very light 380g
  • Basically the same size/weight as an X100 with the XF27mm
  • Once you start adding options the X-S10 comes into reach and might be a better value
